Israeli aircraft blow up bridge in northern Gaza Strip

Here they go. Should have given them their soldier back.

IAF aircraft blew up a bridge in the northern Gaza Strip shortly before midnight on Tuesday. The army said that the operation was intended to keep Hamas from taking kidnapped soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit out of the Gaza Strip

I have to be honest. I don't hold out much hope for the survival of the Israeli soldier captive in Palestine. I do however have a gut feeling that he won't be going into the great beyond all by himself.

In addition, IDF tanks were stationed around Gaza, and were awaiting orders to begin a ground incursion into the strip. However, the army contradicted an Israel Radio report that the tanks had actually begun moving into the Strip.

Why those people over there want to spend the short precious life we are given fighting each other day after day is well beyond me. Has anyone over there questioned the possibility that there is no afterlife and that all the fighting and martyring and bombings and anger is actually more pointless than drying your clothes in the rain?

Earlier, Defense Minister Amir Peretz said that "the clock is running out, and Israel is poised and ready for a military operation in the Gaza Strip."

Guess not. Oh well. Wonder what's on TV.
